The Expressive arts include experiences and outcomes in the contexts of art and design, drama, dance and music. The main lines of development are creating, presenting and evaluating.
Through activities of this kind children are encouraged to develop their powers of observation, personal response, critical analysis, evaluation and communication.
Learning in the expressive arts provides opportunities to underpin and enrich learning in all other curricular areas more widely.
West Primary School recognises the tremendous scope to work in partnership with a wide range of artists and musicians, co-ordinators and organisations in culture and the arts who are able to enrich young people’s experiences and learning. Also our own community of parents, neighbours and staff have a wealth of skills and experience to contribute.
